It's a patch to the code.

Man patch is your friend. 

Save the chunk from the 'diff' down until the final bracket under a name
like wine-newer-version.patch and copy it to the same directory as your
wine source top dir. 

cd into the source top dir (so 'ls ..' shows you
wine-newer-version.patch) and ls dlls/advapi32/security.c shows you the

enter the following line

patch -p0 < ../wine-newer-version.patch

make clean, and compile and install. You will have added whatever
functionality that patch provides.
